Last week I shared some multiple exposures from a trip to Ontario where we got lost and stopped by the side of the road for a few minutes. I had a few more of the parking lot I thought were interesting. Not the most ideal landscape but overall I thought they turned out quiet interesting, night silhouettes are some of my favourite to shoot. Even odd times like then can be the perfect opportunity for taking photographs. You can check out the other sets of photos, here!
Today’s multiple exposure are of the Montreal Biosphère located in Montreal on Ile Saint Helen. Taken during one of me and Victor’s summer bike trips as we were riding from Ile Notre Dame back across Jean-Drapeau parc to our house.The sun was just starting to set so it’s not quiet a sunset just yet but I thought I’d try and capture the clouds behind the Bioshphere.
A look of what the Montreal Biosphère looks like without use of multiple exposure techniques.
I love the lines of the Jacques Cartier bridge, although they aren’t supposed to be an architecture highlight (they are the guard rails to prevent jumpers) I can’t help but appreciate how hypnotic and beautiful I find them. I wasn’t a big fan of these photographs after I shoot them because the sky, although a beautiful sunset is too muddy feeling for me. However the lines created are very unique and this is reminder for me to go out on the bridge again and take more.
I usually end up taking a combination of regular photography and multiple exposures when shooting so I may start including a photograph where I haven’t taken a multiple exposure so you can get an idea of what the subject looked like without the technique used. It’s kind of interesting to compare (to me at least).
My crescent moon multiple exposures are actually from the same sunset I showed you photos of last week here, except a bit later on after the sun had set. Taken of Lake Ontario during a camping trip in late September. The sky enamored me so much that night I just had to capture the reflection of the silhouetted trees on the water and the extra bright moon. We pasted this particular shot while in the car and I insisted on getting out and taking photos telling them to go ahead. It was nice just sitting there alone watching the moon.
Sunset waves are a series of multiple exposures taken during a summer camping trip a few years ago to Lake Ontario The sun was just starting to go down and you could see it disappearing along the water’s horizon, so I captured the sunset and waves of the lake as one.
